Springboard to Kindergarten

Our Program 

Our Springboard to Kindergarten program is designed for children who have not had a high-quality preschool experience and whose families have financial need (based on the City of Palo Alto Income Ceiling Criteria). All students who apply for Springboard to Kindergarten must be registered for kindergarten in PAUSD for the upcoming school year.

The Springboard program typically starts in late January, after families have registered for kindergarten in PAUSD for the following fall. Due to the pandemic, and in accordance with State and County health guidelines, we have not scheduled a start date for 2022. Applications will be available once a start date is confirmed.

Our Mission

The mission of Springboard to Kindergarten is to give all children entering PAUSD the opportunity to have a high quality pre-k experience before they begin kindergarten. The goal of Springboard to Kindergarten is to improve kindergarten readiness and increase each child's potential for academic and social success in school.
